# Verify that GDB waits for the "attach" command to finish before
# processing the following command.
# GDB used to have a race where on async targets, in the small window
# between the attach request and the initial stop for the attach, GDB
# was still processing user input.
# The issue was originally detected with:
# echo -e "attach PID\nset xxx=1" | gdb
# In that scenario, stdin is not a tty, which disables readline.
# Explicitly turning off editing exercises the same code path, and is
# simpler to do, so we test with both editing on and off.
# The test uses the "attach" command.
